ISPs react to concerns over deployment of (awful!) "Carrier Grade NAT"

http://j.mp/V7ljec  (ISPreview)

    "Perhaps unsurprisingly most of the bigger ISPs weren't too keen to get
     into the nitty gritty of CGNAT, with EE (Orange UK) preferring not to
     comment at all and TalkTalk simply advising us that they had "no plans
     to introduce Carrier Grade NAT at this time" (this doesn't mean they
     won't do it in the future)."

In case you're not already familiar with the concept of Carrier Grade
NAT, let me provide this succinct summary: It would break all manner
of common Internet applications -- including virtually all servers --
and provide ISPs an excuse to charge extra for the "privilege" of not
being subjected to it.  It is primarily a technique for ISPs to
further delay full deployment of IPv6.  Carrier Grade NAT is being
considered for deployment by ISPs around the globe.  Very bad.
